Even the gracious homes need maintenance. They need to be cleaned, repaired, polished and managed. In the same way, every relationship needs maintenance. Because we aren't perfect, there'll be emotional meltdowns, communication faux pas and plain old errors in marriage so we need to be good at recovering, recuperating and reconnecting. Here are 10 steps to recover and reconnect with your spouse.
1. Test the waters
Do not say a thing, just hug her, or squeeze his knee or pat his hand. Sometimes the best things in life are unspoken. A way to keep this principle in mind is this little poem:
To keep a marriage brimming
with love in the loving cup
When you are wrong, admit it
and when you are right, shut up!
